We usually have had pretty good luck with going to Denny's when we just want some yummy comfort food and don't want to spend a ton of money. This one was no exception to what we've come to expect from this chain. The staff were very nice here, service was quick, meals were tasty, and the price was reasonable.

Visited as a family of 5, the food was excellent and great value for money. Service was great too, certainly one of the best Denny's we've visited while in the US. Highly recommended.

Went to Denny's after a dr appointment in town and it was packed. at one point they had a waiting list because every seat was taken. It looked like bare bones stuff which usually means slow service and cold food. That was not the case this visit. Every single worker helped out and was hustling. Great visit!

My wife had the grand slam do it yourself where you choose 4 things you want for a very reasonable price...I think it was $8.49. That was good tooi. The bacon was very smoky and crisp...the eggs cooked perfectly. The grand slam... More

Having eaten at a few Denny's Diner previously I was disappointed with the food this time, food was bland, presentation poor , table wasn't clean even though store wasn't busy , the only nice thing was the service from the assistant that took our order, he was a young man and very friendly( his grandparents are in rotary. )This store...

Usually no issues with Denny's, This one is an exception to the rule.They broke a few. 5 of us went there for lunch. We had 3 different waiters, and a manager help in serving us. This meant no one knew what the other was doing, constant interruptions for the same orders. The 2 salads were delivered at different times, one... More

My daughter and I planned our stop at this Denny's which was about half way through our drive from SoCal to San Luis Obispo. We frequent Denny's on road trips and sometimes go to the one in our area. We were surprised by this Denny's because the staff was so upbeat and friendly. The service was great and every request... More

The value menu is super cheap, and you get so full. We came for late night breakfast. Excellent hashbrown and great pancakes. Waiter totally messed up our drinks orders and mixed our plates. But the food was cheap and good. Would go again

We stopped here for lunch on our way to LAX to catch a flight. We knew we could get a decent salad at Denny's so chose to come here rather than drive around to find somewhere to eat. Service was fast. Salads were generous & tasty. I asked for hot tea with lemon & got enough for 2 cups. Getting... More
